  • PISCATAWAY, N.J. - Sophomore guard Quincy Douby scored 16 points and led a balanced scoring attack by Rutgers as the Scarlet Knights ran past Fairleigh Dickinson 88-57 on Wednesday night at the Rutgers Athletic Center.

    Rutgers (5-3) had four players in double figures and three first-year players post career highs as it extended its winning streak to a season-high three games. The Scarlet Knights beat FDU (4-7) for the eighth time in nine meetings.

    Sophomore forward Ollie Bailey, the leading shooter in the BIG EAST coming in to the game had 15 for Rutgers on 7-for-10 shooting. Bailey is now shooting .653 from the field. Freshman guard Manny Quezada scored a career-high 13 points, all in the second half. Quezada, who shot 6-for-8 along with Douby, entered the game with five points all season. Junior center Jimmie Inglis (10 points, eight rebounds) and freshman forward Dan Waterstradt (eight points) also had career highs.

    FDU, which was averaging 76.7 points per game, was held to a season-low in points and shot just 37.7 percent overall and 15 percent from 3-point range.

    Gordon Klaiber led FDU with 15 points and 11 rebounds, and Andrea Crosariol added 11 points.

    Holding a 23-17 advantage with 6:40 left in the first half, Rutgers scored 11 consecutive points and went on a 16-4 run to take a 39-21 halftime lead.

    FDU never got closer than the 18 the rest of the way, as Rutgers gradually extended the lead after intermission. The Scarlet Knights opened their largest lead of 23 points on four different occasions, the last coming at 87-54.

    With tonight’s 88-57 victory over Fairleigh Dickinson, Rutgers improves its record to 5-3 on the season. Rutgers is 8-1 all-time against FDU and 34-3 against current members of the Northeast Conference.
